their lives hiding in the rocks of a ten year old boy being rescued today is a day of mourning there's a memorial service being held just a few hundred metres from here in oslo cathedral and the called hearing is on monday the police say there still may be more casualties up to ninety seven recorded and there is criticism that it took them from an hour to an hour and a half after receiving information of the attack on the island that it took them over an hour to get to the scene and to stop the massacre there's also been criticism they were looking for muslims initially they were saying it was a muslim attack the police say that it was difficult to get to the island they had to find transport their stories are emerging of immense heroism over ordinary people who rescued fellow victims who went back into the danger area here in the city center but also there is growing criticism here in oslo of government integration policies which seem to have backfired more now in this report brave christine who was. called bomb explosion in the days and surrounded by broken

clothes she stayed in the blows to help the wounded the waitress just standing chatting and then suddenly it just fate i was like i come like a fish just waiting for you bobby lofted out like plastics in their eyes. you know that gets smashed glass all over them the skin and everything this show. victims before giving its whole drinks as a nation which has never suffered at the hands of terrorists before he says norwegians just didn't know how to react. or lorne's from from course on the buildings. but also on the people holding each gaming rolling on this man's wife suffered severe short when their windows were blown out by the blast but he says they're lucky to be alone he's thoughts go out to the many young victims of the second attack i think about. there's
12:03 pm
a ship there are so cheap and. i think. that. this is so close to the two atrocities produced many acts of heroism but the dust settles on the world's worst mass shooting experts say there's also anger that the attacks were allowed to happen in the first place anger the truth or ignore dozens of hate messages from suspect anders behring breivik you haven't really been prepared for right wing extremism expressed fury at the government's open door policy on immigration blogs and twitter feeds. the shootings may reflect growing national opposition to fully immigration policies the political establishment or more they are relative the bell of people that live in areas where there are simply no immigrants so that was a poor people in northern being pushed out of places they used to live live in and it's also their drug stocks are in jeopardy muslims claim this disappointment that
12:04 pm
the killer turned out to be white they want this guy to be a muslim or how muslim you know. it's for them it's a little bit strange because he's no egypt so they talk too much about islam and about us. it is not good norwegians are said to be fed up with their brand of what's been dubbed radical liberalism it's the country's multicultural policies that turn the government against his own. way. far. wider than norwegians are ready to admit and there's a respectful attitude towards that kind of. mainstream media but the reality is that fifty percent off. against multiculturalism as people here try to pick up the pieces and bring meaning to this twentieth already said.
12:05 pm
relations between communities some expect the crackdown by police on the growing far right movement while others fear this will only fuel resentment against europe's muslims victims are beginning to piece together the shouts of lawyers but the experts warn this might not be the last such a tank as outrage at the perceived failure of a multicultural society grows the new bush will see oslo off anderson who knows the suspect personally told r.t. that he was shocked by the news but that also is a place where radicalism is in the air. i could not imagine i'm saying not even imagine that you can do that he must have been somehow brainwashed or something he never came across as some kind of a religious fanatic or anything i mean i knew that he was religious but it wasn't like he went crying to earth you or anything else. he just i just knew
12:06 pm
it was really just pretty much. i would be more described who. simply by theory say's sometimes even all the way to a hero it would be angry that he would be so to speak second to some person but they are an origin but not more than that i did not guess they thought through ideological. why patients on the other hand you just have to lose around friends. and like. people who have very radical religious views all the way ranging from white christian and then you have people who are the leftist ideas and obviously managed to find some right wing groups so i'm not generally surprised that people find very strange ideas so central oslo is basically like just eat your poison which wrong way you want to.
12:07 pm
that was fenderson a former acquaintance of the alleged killer brave. and now the whole world is discussing what lies behind the atrocity and you can join the debate on our web site r t v dot com and it's so far the majority think that sheer fanaticism is to blame well fewer people say the tension stemmed from multiculturalism when they have eight percent believing that the reason is a global terrorism which penetrates everywhere and the rest say it's down to the failure of security forces a log on to argue dot com and have your say. and still ahead for you in the program nato begins to go over control of afghan provinces to local army forces but many question if they're really up to the job. loss we hear from campaigners against u.s. drone attacks in pakistan who want to far a lawsuit a former cia legal chief for approving attacks that killed hundreds of innocent

people. now greece let out a sigh of relief this week after long talks e.u. leaders finally agreed on how to help the country avoid defaulting on its debts all afghans will now receive a new bailout worth an estimated one hundred nine billion euros well the plan was agreed after greece approved a severe a sturdy mesures sending thousands onto the streets in protest the rescue will also involve lowering interest rates on a greek debt and extending the repayment period the package also doubles the time given to bankrupt the poor should go and are allowed to pay back their own loans meanwhile spain which has the highest unemployment rate in the eurozone saw thousands of protesters converge on madrid on saturday while they camped out in the city center after marching from across the country well for more on where the eurozone is headed we can now talk to financial analysts and most of the guys
12:09 pm
report here on r t max kaiser thank you very much for being on the program with us now the fact that a second bailout was given to greece does say something about what they think is the answer to the problems to do you agree that this is a right move for greece to save its economy and where does it stop will a third of fourth or even fifth bailout be needed. well what it does is it increases the amount of debt it increases the amount of debt in the eurozone it is crease of the amount of debt in greece so this is a plan cooked up by bankers to repackage recent euro ties re debt that's what they do and it crowds out the real economy so if they think that this is going to help the economy grow their way to a position of paying off this debt or paying the interest on the debt that's not going to happen because by giving bankers more dead to control the productive part of the economy you are eliminating that part of the economy's ability to pay off this debt so the banking cancer is just becoming worse in the eurozone and worse in
12:10 pm
greece piers talking about the costs of a second bailout or so are you saying that they are absolutely you know proceed giving greece a second bailout while the unit running out the banks they're not bailing out the workers or the people who are on the ground so to speak they're bailing out european banks they're bailing out wall street banks they're bailing out other banks and so doing they're increasing the debt load so it's making the situation much worse and they're crowding out any ability for the work workers in greece to generate enough income to pay off this debt this is consigning the population to debt service. ok let's look at what german chancellor angela merkel said with that in the germany spain the bulk of the bailout now she commented saying that the euro is good for us and that europe without the euro is unthinkable is it unthinkable. well it's great for germany because they now have all the pieces in place to
12:11 pm
reestablish what i would dare say is the fourth reich they have the ability now to control the entire eurozone through the german banking system a reunified germany with purview over the entire european banking zone and they get to lord over to countries like greece portugal spain and this is great for germany as long as they keep the euro at a level that they want it's great for their export market doesn't help greece no it doesn't help ireland you know doesn't help portugal absolutely not ok that's a quickly i fear what the protests in spain for example a country and economy that set that was set as it's being too big to fail the unemployment is very high now we've seen violent rallies and greece that didn't do anything to stop a steady measures now can ordinary people actually do anything here you said the second bailout does nothing for ordinary people will protesting be any help or are they just wasting their time. well let's let's keep in mind that whatever the bailout package is to help bail out banks will save one hundred ten billion euros
12:12 pm
for example it's still easy for these bankers driven by wall street bankers to create ten times that amount and derivative contracts and credit default swaps and make it part of the fault because their ability to create derivatives to game the system to remember the reason why greece is failing is because banks are gaming the system and causing it to fail because they make more money on the insurance than they lose on the bonds it's all about gaming the system and this will continue whether spain and italy are big enough or the right size next for the banks on wall street in europe to purposefully crash these economies to make money on the insurance will save my guess is absolutely yes ok now let's look across the atlantic to the u.s. now that the u.s. is heading towards a default if it doesn't braces the debt ceiling by the second of august but we've seen are both democrats and republicans can't seem to agree we have seen walk outs from their meeting so why are they keeping up with their political bickering if we can call it when the situation is so serious. well the republicans are they
12:13 pm
have a long history and they're deeply racist they don't like barack obama along racial lines and they're trying to commit a financial lynching and they want to make it look bad and to paint him as being an effective head of the election that's as simple as that because on a technical basis the debt ceiling argument is meaningless the debt ceiling is been breached twenty times in the past it's never caused any calamity whatsoever the republicans and now the rating agencies complicit as they were complicit in destroying the european economies them complicit in attacking the american economy by saying the debt ceiling is somehow part and parcel of america's credit rating or credit worthiness this is this is put together by the republican party as a personal attack racially motivated against barack obama look at the party who is in the party you look at their history they're all racists ok well thank you very much for your analysis there max keiser financial listen host of the kaiser report
12:14 pm
here on our t.v. . well this week the phone hacking and police bribery scandal was taken to the british parliament rupert murdoch his son james and a former u.k. c.e.o. rebecca brooks were all grilled by british lawmakers for several hours well the trio say they said they were deeply sorry for what happened to whatever new allegations have emerged that the news international chairman james murdoch misled m.p.'s by saying he was unaware of the true extent of illicit phone tapping by his company's reporters the murdoch's could now face legal challenges in the u.s. over claims the voice mails of nine eleven victims were also targeted meanwhile of britain's hacking scandal appears to be spreading beyond the murdoch empire with claims the sunday mirror tabloid also blogs celebrities voicemail messages. reports critics believe the issue is just the tip of the iceberg in a society that no longer values individual privacy. as the scandal over phone
12:15 pm
hacking by the murdoch media empire rages on public and political fury has mainly focused on ruthless tabloids out of control prepared to invade people's private lives and even the dad to get the story but some say in this day and age the whole concept of privacy is falling apart and in the u.s. more rapidly than elsewhere every time you tap on your cell or click on google or use your mail service everybody's sort of just clicks through that you agree to our terms and conditions well those terms and conditions are very very heavily weighted against you and your privacy interests and we see breaches of privacy happening. all across america all across the world really in every sector surveillance is rampant but really this is all a microcosm of the biggest surveille are all which is the state there's little americans can do with the state having sweeping access to their private information
12:16 pm
access that followed the nine eleven terrorist attacks under a new law known as the patriot act hassani law his privacy was taken away from him in two thousand and two when he was detained by the f.b.i. for absolutely no reason he says and scrutinized for months without charge he's response for nine years he has voluntarily documented nearly every waking hour of his life on the web he has subsequently even turned it into a form of art see all the toilets that i've used so you know that over here for example you know that on sunday november twenty fourth of two thousand and seven i've used this toilet i went grocery shopping at safeway over there on october seventeenth i got gas over here he posts copies of every debit card transaction so you can see what he bought where and when a g.p.s. device in his pocket reports his realtime physical location on a map and this is the shot he took on his way to our studio which was immediately
12:17 pm
up loaded on his website hasan. says his extraordinary abandonment of his own privacy stems from the ignorance of the authorities but in the fear they decided well that guy looks a little different so he must be arab and if he's arab then he must have explosives everyone knows that that's a logical operating we we realize how ridiculous that logic sounds but when your country when your own country takes that on as the basis for national policy. ignorance is the basis of national policy is a pretty scary situation. and that's how i got caught up in it for ha son privacy has become a rally of the past and he says he's not surprised that journalists or anyone else really would use the same surveillance tactics as the state in that sense it might be of no surprise that the chief architect of the patriot act the lawyer who put it together happens to be one of murdoch's hand-picked you score board directors you served as assistant attorney general in the bush administration and was described
12:18 pm
by some as the purveyor of the most sweeping curtailment of freedom in the u.s. system across the era at a time when corporations and the government can easily hack into people's private lives it doesn't come as a surprise when for example social networks give your personal information at companies or when other industries leave on breaching the privacy in the u.s. it's so widespread and people have gotten so used to it that rupert murdoch seems to be perfect part of the system rather than some special bill and with corporation has been undertaking some unique all lawful practices because here in america they are not so unique i'm going to check our reporting from washington our team well for more news and comment on the financial woes gripping the world head to our team dot com here's a taste of what else is there right now a cover of mystery i'll find out why every july since the eighteen eighties california words have been filled with some of the boasts wealthy and power. awful

12:22 pm
a new military commander in the country general john allen at once of quote tough times ahead for the war effort earlier this month the afghan president's half brother was assassinated by one of his own bodyguards and in a separate incident one of hamad karzai is top advisors was also gunned down antiwar activist brian becker thinks the u.s. led coalition is losing ground in afghanistan while the number of casualties continues to rise. they can't win by staying in fact their presence is becoming the main catalyst for the armed insurgency not only the taliban but maybe one hundred forty armed groups and they can't leave either because if they leave there will be a perception that the us and nato were defeated by an armed insurgency but this dilemma must be solved some way so ultimately the united states cannot prevail the assassination of karzai as brother and his inner circle shows that the edifice of
12:23 pm
the karzai regime necessary at least to give afghan face to the nato occupation that itself is now crumbling these armed attacks these assassination attempts are designed to create panic and i think in all likelihood they are creating panic within the very heart the foundation of the karzai government the u.s. is losing grown steadily its spending one hundred twenty billion dollars a year that's an increasing amount from a treasury that's already drained based on huge budget deficits here the number of casualties on the afghan and american side is is increasing not decreasing and yet they're no closer to victory in fact they're losing control of the country and the government that they sponsor is is in fact in danger of crime when i would say the u.s. hasn't gained anything i think the u.s. is losing ground and spite of what david petraeus and the obama administration say this is a bad situation possibly a catastrophe for the united states. the u.s. has been carrying out unmanned drone strikes in pakistan for years but now one of

the masterminds of the attacks is in the crosshairs himself former cia official john rizzo faces a lawsuit over civilian casualties a human rights lawyer said the families of victims are seeking an arrest warrant against him it's claimed that result approved a list of targets for the drone strikes which often resulted in this course of civilian deaths tara burry is a member of the campaign group that's bringing the action against reso and she told r.t. that washington must be held to account for its operations in pakistan. thus far these drones have been operating in pakistan in the federal federal administration and tribal areas. and they've been operating in secret by the cia and they've been killing indiscriminately hundreds of civilians since all the purpose of this is is hopefully to gets a chance parents out of the cia and out of obama and to to get some justice on behalf of the victims of these drone strikes as we know the u.s. is not in a war in pakistan the u.s.
12:25 pm
it is operating extra legally by carrying out these drone strikes in pakistan in yemen and somalia and in terms of it being disproportionate you know we have numbers coming out of pakistan that indicate that you know for every one suspected militants being killed one hundred forty innocent civilians are dying as a result of these strikes and so if those numbers are correct you know we have people on the ground who are gathering the information who are doing the investigation to try to collect the information so that we can bring a more transparent a more honest picture to the public about what's happening in pakistan. earlier we talked to a man who reached out beyond earth's atmosphere and became one of the select few ever to walk on the phone that's after a recap of the week's top stories coming to you in just a few moments. for
